Dutch researchers showed a model of a floating artificial island to accommodate housing and farmland to be used in case of sea level rise.
It is planned that the artificial island will be a construction of the 87 triangles of various sizes, built of concrete and steel, the total area is 3 km2, the report said the Maritime research Institute Netherlands (MARIN).
Model of the island measuring about 6 by 8 meters, was made of wood and polystyrene and placed in a tank of water to simulate wind and waves.
Expected floating island can serve several purposes at once. Among them: development, creation, storage and maintenance of sustainable energy (offshore wind, tidal energy, wave energy and floating solar panels), loading and reloading of goods in coastal areas, where there is little infrastructure; cultivation of food, such as seaweed and fish; the construction of houses and places near the water.
"As sea level rise and cities become crowded, and in the sea are more action. The cultivation of dams and land reclamation may not be an effective solution. An innovative alternative to the corresponding Dutch Maritime tradition, is the floating ports and the city," said project leader and developer of the concept of Olaf Waals.
